Birchbox Freebies!

Can you believe I got $50 worth of great products for free?! I have been saving up my points for over a year now so needless to say, I had a bunch to spend. If you were unsure about how the Birchbox point system works here's a quick breakdown:

  • 10 points = $1
  • you can spend your points in $10 increments

           How can you get points?
  • For each Birchbox you buy = 10 points (even one's you gift!)
  • For each item you get in your box and give feedback on = 10 points

Honestly, it may be my favorite part about Birchbox. You can buy anything on their website with your points. If you have enough points, it will even pay for shipping too! Here's the stuff I purchased was sent! for free! I am sorry, I just love the concept!




Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleanser: I have oily/dry skin. It just all depends. I had a feeling I was going to love it considering they went to the ends of the Amazon River to find White Clay for it. Amazonian clay can actually help with both dry and oily skin so this seemed perfect. It sounds fancy! LOL! It Exfoliates and Detoxifies as well.

My review: I do love exfoliators but I don't want something to be too abrasive on my face considering my skin can also be sensitive at times as well. This cleanser has very tiny exfoliant's in it and was comfortable washing my face. The exfoliant's in it are even tinier than Proactiv's exfolitant's, if you have ever used Proactiv.

Considering this face wash is a clay, I was expecting something less creamy for some reason. It comes out as a clay, then when you start washing your face the clay turns into a milky, soapy face wash. It is really nice! Once I dry off my face I do notice how soft and smooth (& clean!) my skin is and I have really been liking this! Dare I say- It rivals Proactiv any day!



Stila Eyeshadow in Jezebel: If you have seen my Rose Gold post, you would have already seen this eyeshadow. I really love it! I already knew I was going to as Stila eyeshadow's are my favorite to begin with. I have been loving adding this in my crease with a matte cream color on my lid. pretty



Dr. Hauschka's Radiant You Kit: This was the thing that I couldn't decide on when I was ordering everything. The lavender bath isn't for a bath, it's actually to use in conjunction with everything else for a spa like facial. I will be doing a demo or a review at some point because there's something to it. For know if your contemplating trying this out, I say got for it! It's a nice treat!

I'm banking all my Birchbox points for a Clarisonic. I don't quite think I'll get it for free but I'm aiming for at least half off.


New follower and I found you from the BlogLoveTherapy Blog Hop.
